On the Inside:
Jack is from Brownsville, Kentucky. He plays banjo, keyboard, washboard, and djembe in a band called Red River George. Jack collects obscure objects, antiques, and instruments. He also has a beautiful cat named Boris, a mean chameleon named Larry, and a parrot named Rubin that repeats everything. They all keep Jack entertained.
